What people are saying about Zanzibar

It was an absolute hit. We had the trip on the second day of our arrival. Our guide took us to the original, non-touristy part and told us a lot about politics, culture, handcraft and life in Zanzibar. It was very exciting. He also showed us the easiest way to get back from the village to the Hotel Sandies and that it is more likely to do shopping where women sell because they use the income for the children. All in all a really recommendable excursion. The sunset trip is also uuuuu absolutely recommended! There is a bongo team on board, which creates a good atmosphere and the ship is unique! I don't want to reveal too much here, take part!

Good service, pick-up on time, nice guide, great experiences, zoo, forest, swimming with turtles I will leave with bad memories, they are wild animals that look very nice, one attacked me from behind and bit my arm, I hope the blue ring left behind around the wound on your arm doesn't develop into blood poisoning

Perfect day ! Rich and varied activities, a very attentive and very patient driver guide. The swim with the turtles was exceptional as was the encounter with the monkeys at the zoo.

Superb activity The walk in the forest is magnificent and the setting for swimming with the turtles is very pleasant.

Highly recommended experience! Our driver Ahmad was very kind to us and had an excellent deal with us
